Stover, wheat straw are sustainable, available, affordable, reliable as biofuels feedstock, says Inbicon

| June 23, 2011

In Denmark, Inbicon says its recent study shows that corn stover and wheat straw supply is dense enough in North America to be economical as a feedstock for its biomass-to-ethanol technology. Inbicon’s latest study, analyzing U.S. corn biomass collection practices, was done by Larry Johnson. Johnson’s findings detail the complex logistics of specifying, purchasing, harvesting, storing, and transporting stover (which also apply to grain straws). He says he’s “already designed the framework for a comprehensive system. If you use yesterday’s thinking, it won’t work. But American agriculture keeps rising to new challenges with better methods.”
